Conference Overview

Knowlex and Scottish Healthcare Governing Bodies are collaborating to host IPC/HFM Improving Services to Reduce Infection 2022 – Scotland’s first-ever national-conference to not only address the challenge of reducing HCAIs (Healthcare-Acquired Infection) but also the difficulties facing the facilities management teams in keeping our hospitals open and safe for business. This CPD-accredited event will bring together policy-makers, leaders and key-professionals from all elements of the Scottish healthcare structure. Scotland has led the UK in terms of best practice for many years and, is now entering a period of massive reform, change and growth. As new public-bodies such as the National Care Service find their feet and take shape, it is critical that the teams that keep us infection-free whilst receiving treatment, are at the cutting edge of the process.
